An easy walk taking in the two main tops of the Cézallier area in the French Massif Central. The main issue in the Sancy, Cézallier and Cantal areas is to avoid the cattle (which may possibly include a bull) while venturing off the beaten track, as is necessary to reach the first summit of this route, which visit I would not recommend unless you're a keen and somehow adventurous peak-bagger. I left the main track a bit too early to reach Signal de Luguet N Top (1543m), which stands along a fence in a clearing, offering some lovely views. This GPX track may not be the optimal route for this top, plus I had to be cautious on the way back to the main gravel track to avoid trampling on the countless wild flowers and also while crossing the last fence. A marked trail contours the featureless top of Signal de Luguet (1547m), which is covered with an old forest. An obvious track cuts through the forestry and from there a faint trail heads S for a few tens of meters to the summit marker. No views from the top itself, but the extensive vista from the trail outside the forestry is well worth the visit. Note that the most direct access to the main top is a stile along the main gravel track, which I crossed on the way back.
